Parczew Powiat Page
On this page are several maps of the powiat and a link table to take
you to individual gmina pages, where you will find information about every
city, town, village and hamlet in the powiat.
On each GMINA PAGE is a list of every city, town and village in that
gmina, with information about each place, where known, and any links to
other sites if available. Remember, if you found the place in the Placefinder,
then the last number of the code that was listed with it is the number
of the gmina. This page has been divided into gmina pages to allow WEBTV
users to access them and to allow for future expansion. Click the link
below to go to the required gmina.
All places are marked on the maps at the bottom of the gmina pages,
while places marked in red are also marked on the map at the bottom of
this page. As some browsers still can't handle Polish characters, any names
with these extra characters are repeated using the nearest equivalent English
characters in round brackets '( )'. Names in square brackets '[ ]' are
older names for that location.
These pages will be continually updated.

The Powiat of Parczew
Parczew is in the Lubelskie province, north of Lublin.
The powiat covers an area of 953 sq.km and has a population of 39 000 people.
It forms part of the old Polish-Lithuanian borderland, the northeastern
part being part of Lithuania and the southwestern part being part of Poland.
During the time of the partitions it was part of the Podlasie region, but
when Poland regained its independence in 1918 it became part of the Lubelskie
province. Since the 1950's, when provinces were repeatedly cut into smaller
and smaller pieces, it became part of Bialskopodalskie and Chelmskie provinces.
In 1998 it became part of the Lubelskie province once again.
Geographically it lies in the Parczew plain,
part of the Polesie Lubelskie, with its northwestern corner part of the
Leczna-Wlodawa Lake District. Several rivers cross the powiat, including
the Piwonia, Tysmienica and the Zielawa.
